[audio]The Pretty Lady - Arnold Bennett
LibriVox recording of The Pretty Lady, by Arnold Bennett. Read by Simon Evers. ‘The Pretty Lady’ is considered to be one of Bennett's most revealing and under-rated works. It is the story of a French prostitute, Christine, who has escaped from wartime Ostend, and set herself up in business in London. Though a refugee, she demands no pity; she is self-sufficient, practical and realistic. Christine is not a harpy preying on innocent soldiers, but a canny businesswoman, doing the best she can w...

[audio]Mental Efficiency and Other Hints to Men and Women - Arnold Bennett
LibriVox recording of Mental Efficiency and Other Hints to Men and Women, by Arnold Bennett. Read by Ruth Golding. In this light-hearted yet thought-provoking collection of articles, published in 1911, Bennett offers his thoughts on exercising your mind, organising your life, marriage, happiness and other pocket philosophies. The book stands the test of time, and much is still relevant and amusing - perhaps even more so, with nearly 100 years of hindsight, than when it was originally written...

[audio]Tales of the Five Towns - Arnold Bennett
LibriVox recording of Tales of the Five Towns, by Arnold Bennett. Read by Martin Clifton. This is a selection of short stories recounting, with gentle satire and tolerant good humour, the small town provincial life at the end of the nineteenth century, based around the six towns in the county of Staffordshire, England, known as the Potteries. Arnold Bennett chose to fictionalize these towns by changing their names and omitting one (Fenton) as he apparently felt that “Five Towns” was more eup...

A LibriVox recording of How to Live on Twenty-Four Hours a Day, by Arnold Bennett. Read by Mark F. Smith "Which of us lives on twenty-four hours a day? And when I say 'lives,' I do not mean exists, nor 'muddles through.'" Arnold Bennett knew a "rat race" when he saw one. Every day, his fellow white-collar Londoners followed the same old routine. And they routinely decried the sameness in their lives...

[audio]Self and Self-management: Essays about Existing - Arnold Bennett
LibriVox recording of Self and Self-management: Essays about Existing, by Arnold Bennett (1867 - 1931). Read by Ruth Golding. Bennett's essays always provide food for thought and bring a wry smile to the lips. Human nature, it appears, changes little over the ages, and Bennett's writing stands the test of time, though in the case of some of the essays in this eclectic collection, it is well to remember that they were written at the time of the First World War and the fight for women's suffrage...
